Sitting Here Thinking Of You

SIMPLE----that tends to be my style when it comes to cards.  But recently I've ventured deeper into the world of greeting cards and am loving it.  So many bloggers out there are beyond talented and their creations can really be looked at as art more-so than just a simple greeting card.  The card in my post today was "finished" according to my typical standards, but I decided to add another element to it.  Perhaps if I add one little thing at a time it won't seem so overwhelming.

This pic shows my "finished" card before the flower vine was added.
Now here is the real end product.  I think that one extra piece added quite a lot of pizzaz to this card.
The vine portion was cut with my Cricut from the Bloom Lite cartridge.  I cut two of the leaf portions below and adhered them together.
The flowers were stamped on decorative paper from a Stamps happen image (Buttercup Fairy) then popped out on the vine.

I've used Circus Tilda and placed her on a brick wall that I created myself using my Copic markers.
